Lulu B’s, the Vietnamese trailer-turned brick and mortar, seems to have shuttered without any word. Several tipsters reported its shutter to Eater, and the phone number has been disconnected. The doors to the restaurant are locked. This space will be updated with any further information.

Originally a trailer on South Lamar, Lulu B's was known for its banh mi, vermicelli bowls, summer rolls, and lemongrass pork and tofu. The trailer opened in 2008, and closed when the physical restaurant debuted in February 2015. It took over the former El Flaco Cafe space on South Congress.

Across the street, Pflugerville-based Taste of Ethiopia opened its second location, serving stews and injera. For South Austin banh mi needs, head to Elizabeth Street Cafe for an upscale version. Otherwise, venture across the river to Tam Deli, Baguette House, Lily’s Sandwich, Ng BMT, or many others, or head to East Side's Saigon Le Vendeur
